A team led by Dr.

A team led by Dr. Robert Rennaker and Dr. Michael Kilgard was performed to investigate whether repeated pairing vagus nerve stimulation with a particular movement would alter neuronal activity in the primary motor of the laboratory rats ‘ cortex. Hypothesis hypothesis, they combined the vagus nerve stimulation with movements of the forelimb in two groups of rats. In a recent issue in a recent issue of the Cerebral Cortex.

‘.. From a stroke from a stroke or brain injury often undergo rehabilitation, repeated movement of the affected limb in an attempt to closes motor skills. It is assumed that repeated use of of the affected limb reorganization of the brain essential to recovery leads. The current study suggests that vagus nerve stimulation paired with standard therapy may result in a more rapid and comprehensive reorganization of the brain, the potential for accelerate and improve recovery after stroke, said Rennaker, Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas ‘ School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences.

The results of this study may also help plan cardiac surgery more accurate.

The results of this study may also help plan cardiac surgery more accurate, according to Andr? a co-author and a heart surgeon at the University Zurich in Switzerland.

By cardiac MRI, 78 % to 95 % of the time , the new CT. Correctly identified restricted blood flow and correctly it dominates 84 % to 94 % of the time compared Compared to invasive angiography had the new CT 90 % accuracy in detecting significant blockages. The new CT scanner, the accuracy can be improved, added by 95 % compared with CT perfusion – a scan taken after the use of contrast agents.. For accuracy, the new scan to cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and invasive angiography, which was snaking is a catheter through an artery in the groin or arm to the heart compared.
